Endorsement is a robust quality check on training which is cross referenced with set criteria developed by the industry. It ensures a minimum standard of training within our footprint that is regulated. Employers and individuals look for our logo and have confidence in knowing that the training they book onto is safe, effective and regulated.
Who is it for?
Endorsement is for any organisation that offers training and would like to follow best practice, upskill and strengthen their systems and processes to ensure they are leaders of recognised training within their industry.
Why should I get my training endorsed?
All endorsed providers will be listed on the new quality training portal, an online directory of industry quality assured training. Endorsed your training allows you to offer CPD points to the hair and beauty sector and Endorsed Providers can also take advantage of our added benefits.
There are three levels of endorsement available
- Centre of Expertise
- Endorsed Provider (Formerly Member School and CPD endorsement)
- Approved Provider
Approved Provider status is a good starting point to becoming an Endorsed Provider, and is for training providers who offer their own non-endorsed CPD training. Being an approved provider will show employers and learners that you have sufficient quality assurance processes in place, you have occupationally competent staff, and that you comply to an established code of practice.
Endorsed Provider (Formerly Member School and CPD endorsement)
Endorsed Provider status is for training providers who offer their own CPD training and/or deliver qualifications and is available for single and multiple training and/or qualifications. Endorsed training is awarded CPD points which are passed on to the learner.
Centre of Expertise
Centres of Expertise is a national network of training providers delivering high quality programmes and recognises providers that are delivering the very highest level of learning and addressing employer demand in the hair and beauty sector. Only centres that have successfully met and maintained criteria and pass an assessment visit by an industry assessor will be approved. Centre of Expertise status is an add on to Endorsed Provider status and is available for single and multiple training courses.Find out more about endorsement and Centre of Expertise
